Purvis Gray is celebrating its 75th Anniversary in 2021. On June 1, 1946, Roy L. Purvis, Howard W. Gray and Earl P. Powers founded the public accounting firm in Gainesville, Florida known as Purvis Gray. For over seven decades, the leadership legacy of Purvis Gray’s retired partners and current partners has carried forward a reputation for integrity, impartiality and quality.
“Over the past 75 years Purvis Gray has grown steadily across the state of Florida serving clients across the country,” shares David Gaitanis, Managing Partner of Purvis Gray. “This successful growth was without acquisition or merger and accomplished by the leadership of our past and present partners, talented employees and committed clients.”
Purvis Gray employs over 100 dedicated partners and associates serving clients in six locations across the state of Florida: Gainesville, Ocala, Tallahassee, Sarasota, Orlando and Lakeland. The firm has been in the Sarasota and Bradenton area since 1997, including the last 12 years in Lakewood Ranch.
As a full-service CPA firm, Purvis Gray offers services that include auditing, tax planning and preparation, accounting, peer review, IT assurance and consulting across the State of Florida and beyond. Purvis Gray is an independent member of the BDO Alliance USA, a nationwide association of independently owned, local and regional accounting, consulting and service firms with similar client service goals.
